Thich Nhat Hanh is passing away in Plum Village

Tao & Zen Community Forum

“Dear Sangha Friends,

We get a sad news, it says that one of our great master, Thich Nhat Hanh, is passing away in Plum Village, with his disciples around him.They are calm and focused, and so should we be. His continuation is already here in his senior students, and we also are part of that continuation.

There will of course be official announcements as things unfold, and they will be passed on to you. But his passing out of this material manifestation is imminent.

The Sisters ask that you sit, peacefully for Thay, as they are doing, and send him your love. Also, that you might like to chant for him (you could do it along with the monks and nuns) this Avalokiteshvara Chant,

but to us, this day itself should be a very very mindful day in his honour, and because we know that is what would please him more than anything else.”

Deep bow,

  2. Thay teaches that, at every moment, we are arriving and departing. We are continuing. May Thay, and we, continue well into the future,
